Twelve Angry Men at Hamilton Family Theatre Cambridge The life of a young man hangs in the balance as one of the most gripping stories of all time unfolds on stage. On a hot and humid summer day, twelve men sequestered in a room must decide whether an inner-city teen is guilty of the murder of his father, thereby sentencing the young defendant to death. It looks like an open-and-shut case, but as the dozen men try to reach a unanimous decision, Juror #8 plants the seed of reasonable doubt, thereby preventing a quick verdict … much to the chagrin of his eleven colleagues. Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and conflict threatens to derail the delicate judicial process as twelve angry men from all strata of society revisit the evidence, and confront each other's personal biases. A testament to the complicated quest for justice, this profoundly relevant classic is at once clever, dramatic, and deeply compelling. Recommended for ages 12 and up.
